Specialist with 19 years’ experience appointed to expand GenSight’s European presence
London, UK – April 24, 2008 – GenSight, a provider of Project Portfolio Management software, has appointed Rowland Jenkin as its new European sales manager.
Jenkin has 19 years of experience in portfolio analysis and management, strategic planning, financial analysis, and resource and project management. He will be based out of GenSight’s European headquarters in the UK and responsible for driving GenSight’s business across Europe.
Prior to joining GenSight, Jenkin has worked for companies in the UK, Middle East and the US, that offer project and portfolio management including Niku (formerly ABT Corporation) and most recently Planview. As regional alliances manager at Planview, Jenkin was responsible for developing and managing a network of partners and resellers across Northern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. In total, Jenkin has 40 years’ experience in technology projects.
David Munt, GenSight’s managing director, said, “Rowland has extensive experience in project and portfolio management sales and project management and I know his expertise and track record is going to be a great boost to our business.”
Jenkin said, “GenSight recently scored 100% on Stage Gate certification, demonstrating that the company has developed a superior and market-leading product suite. This certification was hot on the heels of the release of version 7.0 of GenSight Enterprise, a real-time project and portfolio tracking application that has been adopted by a number of multinational conglomerates. I look forward to contributing to GenSight’s ongoing success and developing the business in mainland Europe and the UK.”
